Assessment Task:
Task 1a. Write an article summary
Students are required to select one empirical, peer-reviewed journal
article and write a one page summary analysis (single space, 12 font
size) to be submitted online via Turnitin in week 9. Your summary
should include responses to the following:
1. What is the topic?
2. What is the research question/problem/ hypothesis?
3. What are the predictions and the rationale for these
predictions?
4. What methods were used (participants, sampling, materials,
procedure)?
5. What were the main results?
6. Are the findings supported by previous research?
7. What are the limitations of the study?
8. What are the implications of the findings?
Task 1b: Presentation on the critical thinking process leading to
the article summary
Students are also required to create a short presentation of about 5-7
slides, where each student will be expected to demonstrate their
mastery of the process of critically analysing a journal article. Please
see the submission guidelines below:
1. Design a PPT deck – similar to what you would have done
if presenting in class and submit via Turnitin. (All
summative assignments must be submitted via Turnitin).
2. Record an AUDIO FILE of their presentation. This can be
done in various formats; although the MP3 file format is
most commonly used and if compressed is a smaller file
than an uncompressed audio or video file.
3. Email the file to your Lecturer (Outlook can allow 32MB). If
you are unable to attach the file due to size then request
your Lecturer to provide you the option of uploading the file
on OneDrive; link to be shared with your Lecturer.
